    Hi Patty La Chapelle, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Have you checked to ensure you have 12V going to the refrigerator? There is two wires coming from RV that feed the fridge 12V.

  • Patty La Chapelle Mar 07, 2014

    I did not check that, but did not suspect that either as it was running fine and suddenly stopped and lost all the lights on the panel.

  • Patty La Chapelle Mar 07, 2014

    I might mention there are 4 loose wires inside the fridge that go to the light. They are just hanging there and not connected to the light. Could this have anything to do with it? My husband swears it does not, but checking anyway.

You need to ensure you have 12V going to the fridge. Also insure you have 12V on both sides of the terminal block in which the 12V connects to. They will sometime corode. That is more then likely your problem. If you do not have 12V then you must check fuses at you fuse panel/converter in the RV itself. If you do have 12V going to the fridge then you must check the fuses in the new board that you installed. You can give us a call if you would like.

SOURCE: Dometic rv fridge runs fine on elec, lights on gas

It is key that all control switches are in the correct position, depending on what power source you are using, gas, electric, etc. If the switches are not in the proper setting, the unit will not operate.

Here's the manual for your fridge that should be printed out for your use and reference (and reading enjoyment). It has all the info needed to operate and troubleshoot it.

Typically, when using any gas appliance with a pilot light, the sensor has to first be hot enough to trigger it to allow the safety gas shutoff to open and allow the gas to flow to the pilot/burner. Follow the instructions and you should be all set.

SOURCE: my dometic fridge will not turn on

Check to see if you have a switch for storage, on, off etc. usually between doors, or near top right corner of fridge compartment. It may be in wrong position.

If the RV was level when it did not function. First you will want to open the rear vent of the fridge on the RV and check for a yellow residue above the burner area. If you do see that, then you will require a replacement cooling unit because the pipe ruptured. It is common in all new RV fridges that the cooling units lets go within 3 to 7 years. Check out ArctiCold Refrigeration We keep it cold the replacement cooling unit can be purchased through Ebay Dometic RM2652 Brand New Manufactured Cooling Units LIFETIME WARRANTY

2 year old RM 2620 fridge, stopped working. I have power to the plug where it plugs in, but there's no lights or cooling now. Fuses are fine.


On the back side of the unit there will be a small thermostat switch mounted on the heat column. It will be round with two wires attached to it. In the center is a reset button. If this button does not restore power then the next step is to replace the wire coming from 12v supply to the thremostat switch. The wire will be red and will have a black sleeve on it. Under the sleeve is a safety diode (to prevent overheating and fire), it will be held in place with three bendable metal fingers. If the diode is bad it will not allow 12v power to pass through to the circuit board. Even though the refrigerator is running on 110v power the circuit board still requires 12v power to operate. The diode is a part of a FREE recall kit offered by Dometic so your local RV repair center should be able to help you out.

Hi...recently purchased a 2005 Roadtrek RV with a Dometic RM 2354 fridge in it...was getting things ready for camping and had the RV hooked up to 110 power...pushed on button for fridge and went through...


You said there was NO lights on the unit. The Dometic service manual says:

1. No operation - no panel lights: DC Volts

Fuse

Wiring

Upper Circuit Board

Lower Circuit Board

http://www.gasrefrigeration.net/dom_techdata/26121_2852SM.PDF

I would start with the DC volatage and track it back until you lose it. Most of the time it does end up being the lower circuit board though.

3 way dometic RV fridge RM2612 won't work on propane or 12 V


Check any fuses/circuit breakers in harness from battery. That battery should supply 12 volts dc to fridge lugs/terminals at bottom of fridge on outside behind vent.
If battery is good and hooked up properly but no 12 volts to fridge, then you will have to trace back to battery for broken /bad wire. If you want to test quickly, just run 2 jumper wires from battery to those 2 lugs marked + and - Battery + to + (pos)at fridge, and - battery to -Neg at fridge. That should allow you to run it on propane or 12 volt. Remember, running it on 12 volts will kill that battery pretty quick, unless it's being charged. When you are plugged in, the converter supplies the 12 volts to your fridge, as well as should be charging your battery.
